    I believe it's closer to 1000mA...and you might want to talk to Mike. He used to sell them when he operated under the Swell name. You can also try Jameco.com -- otherwise, the pedal is pretty much useless to you and I would suggest you just mail it to me :bag: :p

    Ok... I sent a message requesting a new power supply with my paypal address :hyper:

     
  7. Just curious on the price on those. Have you gotten a reply from Mike yet? I have a Swell Peg-B. My adapter works fine, but it's one of those pedals that will be a big part of my tone for a while. And I like to have back-ups of everything. Let me know.

    Mike reply took just a little while... just before he answered I go one from BassClubChicago.com

    Go to bassclubchicago.com and ask for a power supply they sold me one for US$19.99 free shipping :D

    Very nice service.

    And let me add that those B-Peg are the most misunderstood pedal ever made.... the tone is awesome if you you are into the classic 70's rock tone. You are lucky to have one.
     
  9. Thanks for the info GuzBaas. It really is an amazing pedal. I know its supposed to be just an overdrive, but it really acts as one of the best pre-amps I have played out of. And I have used quite a few in pedal format at this point.
    I actually got to play a show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC. The band after us were friends of ours and the bassist had a 74 SVT. He let me use it for our set and I drove the tubes with the Swell. Between the sound of that room, the head, my Lollar P bass pick-ups and the Swell, I was blown away how great of a tone I copped. I was almost sad when it was over because I knew that just couldn't happen like that again. Oh well. I'll move forward and drive my ss GK 1001 with the Swell. It sounds better than most newer amps for sure.

    Bumping this to see if anyone is powering their pedal with an isolated power supply...and do these need the 1000 mA (as the provided ac adapter supplies)?

    I'm looking around to see if there's a solution for my
    Swell B-Pro
    Eventide H9
    TC Electronics Nova Dynamics
    and some normal 9v pedals (Fairfield Barbershop, Amptweaker Tightfuzz, Dr. Scientist the Elements)

    Any suggestions? I'm trading my BBE power supply because it doesn't work with half my board, and figured I might as well use a power strip/surge protector and a one spot for the 9v ones. Down the road (far down the road probably) I could see myself getting another H9. Is there a single unit that can power all this?

    Thanks
